Transgressive Bodies invites three young creative minds engaging in different aspects of artistic creation to share their creative experiences of queer bodies in conversation at Eaton Radio. They are Nicholas Wong, an acclaimed poet and the winner of the prestigious Lambda Literary Award for Gay Poetry, Jun Li, an emerging film director whose debut feature, Tracey is centred on the life of a transgendered woman, and Castiel Wong, an activist/performance artist who has once been arrested for his performance art in Pride Parade.
